This class was tough.
Course Overview:
It is a worthwhile challenge. If you can get an A or a B in this class you should have no problem with Diff EQ, Cal III, or Linear Algebra.
Course highlights:
I learned how to write rigorous mathematical proofs using delta (my professor used the letter L for limit instead of delta) and Epsilon. This was the first time I had ever been asked to produce a proof. By the end of the class, I got fairly decent at writing and memorizing proofs.
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Get ready to set aside lots of time for studying and memorizing proofs. Half of each exam grade will depend on your ability to swiftly and smartly write rigorous mathematical proofs on the various theorems that you learn throughout the course. You don't have to jot them down word for word. I needed to devote at least a couple hours of my study time to distill the classroom notes down to page worth of information that I could memorize and recite come test day -- and that's in addition to the normal allotted study time that a class like Cal II would warrant.
This class was tough.
Course Overview:
There is no other course which embraces what true mathematics is about. Although this professor was challenging, I can say I learned the material very well in 5 weeks.
Course highlights:
Professor Ollis introduced the concept of teaching the theory and proofs behind Calculus, which are essential when understanding mathematics overall.
Hours per week:
12+ hours
Advice for students:
In order to succeed in this course one has to have the will to be challenged, while also being determined to complete every assignment and be prepared for the tests.
